Women's Insitute

The Cheshire Fire Service Women's Institute (WI) Group was launched on 10th January 2005. The Group is the first workplace based WI in the Country and was launched to give the ladies of Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service a chance to meet regularly, to learn something new, to work with the community and have some fun.

Membership is open to both uniformed and non-uniformed ladies of Cheshire Fire Service.

Subscription Fees - what is the money used for?

Subscription fees are split three ways.

One quarter is payable to the WI National Federation

One quarter to the WI County Federation

The remainder is retained for the Group's use

This will be used to fund events, buy equipment and materials needed and towards transport.

In addition to this, we adopt a local charity every year and a proportion of funds raised are donated to this Charity.
